Images and trailer of Ace Combat 6

Namco-Bandai releases a shitload of images for Ace Combat 6 as well as an awesome trailer, entirely in real-time. We'll wait to see how the game responds hands-on before getting too excited, but this sure looks extremely promising.

My interest in the game has gone from I will get it at some point to I'm gonna have to get it at launch. looks stunning and this could be my first console flight sim ... I am tired of Flight simulator X so this could be the fix!

AC really isn't a console sim though. It's more arcade like with realistic planes and what not. Guess it's kind of like PGR in a way.

Anyway, looks great. I owned/rented all the AC games on the Playstation platforms. This is a must get for me.

What does she say in the trailer? "I walk on, I'm unable to sink"??? "unable to sync"?? or is it just a bad "unable to think"?

The programmer of the other companies in Japan speaks very highly.

looks very cool. I'll have to give it a rent when it's released.

''unable to think'' is the answer.

Some of those screens look amazing, almost like TV Movie level CGI!.

It seems to be more interesting than HALO3.

June 15, 2007 - Seeing a series migrate from one system to another always raises a few eyebrows. Why did the developers make the switch? Was it the superior hardware of one console over another? Maybe it was a dispute with the bigwigs at a given company? Or maybe it was some feature that one console had over another. In the case of Ace Combat's migration to greener, Xbox 360 pastures it was the latter. Xbox Live was what coerced the folks at Namco-Bandai to bring their perennial Playstation powerhouse over to Microsoft's console.

Online play is a big part of what differentiates Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation from past titles, and the Xbox 360's solution was simply a better fit for the gameplay that Namco was trying to bring to the game. We got a brief chance to fly through the skies of Ace Combat 6 at a recent Namco preview event, and while there were no multiplayer modes on display, we do know that the game will feature deathmatch, team deathmatch, and co-op play. A developer on-hand said that they've currently got the game running with 16 players online, but they're hoping to bump that number up to 32 to make the skies nice and crowded with enemy planes.

I SOO SOO SOOO SOOO hope they've got some sexy canyons and stuff... their was nothing like in the old flight-fighters of doing mach1 in a canyon trying to outrun some idiot in a MIG, or blasting through a city, getting to show off how wicked your skills are in comparison to the guy on your tail... I need a game that shows me speed and thats what i want!

16... 32 i dont care their both nice numbers too high a number and it'll end up being chaos ... i rather wicked flying skills over giant dogfights but hey thats me... i like feeling like im in topgun :)

releases when??? man, i need this. over g wasn't so bad, but this looks cooler. ace combat 4 was the last i played, and that was ace.

Heh, finally they got animated characters for their storyline. 4's was just a lame slideshow.

Aside from that, I can't wait to play this game.

About the game

  • KORNdog
    KORNdog RDR2 playable in first person start to finish. might actually make it enjoyable and could even mitigate some of the heavy "wading through molasses" movement you feel while in third person. (11 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It's seriously no different than people who say they can't tell the difference between 30 and 144 fps. (13 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The reason it "feels good" to the shooter is because of heavy handed lag compensation.. which is not actually good: [url] (13 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX "It felt good to me" is why shooters had terrible netcode for a decade. No one cared until BF4 launched broken. (14 Hours ago)
